Broadband speed

Angry This is (it would be if that were possible) an INSTRUCTION. Everywhere in your website, publicity, etc. you must recognise that speed is NOT measured in Mb; it is measured in Mbps or Mb/s because Mb means "megabit" which is a quantity of data.
This fact is implicitly acknowledged here (look for "Megabit"):
http://portal.plus.net/support/customer_service/glossary.shtml#M
Everywhere, where a "speed" is stated as so many Mb, this must be changed to Mbps or Mb/s (megabits per second).
Shameful examples:
http://portal.plus.net/support/broadband/speed_guide/speed_tips.shtml (mentions "speed of 40Mb, ")
https://portal.plus.net/home-broadband/broadband-only/ states "Up to 17Mb download speed". This is literally NONSENSE.
It's as much nonsense as saying, for example, that the speed limit in built-up areas is 30 miles.
